Even the most well-crafted shows like Squid Game can have tiny mistakes. Check out these errors you might not have spotted the first time around!
1. The many faces of Player 88
Throughout the series, different extras played some of the same players in the games. A good example of this is Player 88, who went through at least three casting changes!
2. The fate of Player 61
Player 61 was eliminated in the honeycomb challenge…
…but what about the other Player 61?
3. Player 17, the glassmaker and…time traveler?
Eagle-eyed fans found a glaring error in Player 17’s profile. According to this, he was born in 1897, making him 124 years old. No wonder he decided to participate in the games; after living for so long, life must have been boring!
The game makers have successfully held death games for decades…but their record-keeping could use some work.
5. This false advertising
For the honeycomb game, players had to carve out one of these four shapes. The umbrella was already the most difficult shape…
…but a tiny change made it even more challenging!
6. Gi Hun’s mysterious downgrade
At the end of the show, tech-savvy fans noticed that Gi Hun went from holding a Samsung S7 at the station…
…to talking on a Samsung S3 at the airport.
7. Not hungry?
As this fan pointed out, Gi Hun ate nothing air in one Squid Game scene.

8. The real phone number
The production crew made the mistake of including a real phone number in the fictional world of Squid Game. At first, Netflix did not intend to remove the number, but after the owner of the phone was plagued with calls, things changed. The network pledged to edit the number out of the show.
9. Jun Ho’s magical phone
How did Jun Ho’s phone still have battery power after days of being used without a charger?
Perhaps Season 2 will answer this burning question and more!
10. Player 331
Likes Player 88 and Player 61, Player 331 changed actors throughout the series.
